Valley Station History

Valley Station is located in Southwest Jefferson County.  The area was first settled in the mid-nineteenth century after an early swamp was drained. The Salt River Turnpike, which is today called Dixie Highway, ran through the area. Large-scale suburban development occurred in the 1950s and 1960s.  Valley Station got its name because it is located in the valley between Muldraugh Hill and the Knobs.  Valley Station is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in this neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969.
